“Native American Action Stories” relates to exciting events that occurred hundreds and hundreds of years ago.  This book concerns various tribes located throughout North America and Central America—from frozen ice lands of the Arctic to steamy jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula.

This book is distinguished from many others previously written.  It’s the manner in which unique tribal cultures are described in the first parts of a chapter and then having such facts woven into adventure sequences featured in the latter sections.  Stories are presented in play format as well as in narrative form with each tribe having its own descriptive chapter.  Every chapter contains a map and several full-page illustrations.

Native American Literary Fiction – Spider Woman’s Loom

Spider Woman’s Loom is an exquisitely woven tale by debut novelist Lorie Adair. Set on the vast and starkly beautiful Navajo reservation in the aftermath of Indian agents exploiting the land and sending children to faraway boarding schools for assimilation, Spider Woman’s Loom is narrated by Noni Lee, an old Navajo weaver whose instinct for survival and fierce resistance drives away even those she loves most.

When her estranged niece Shi’yazhi returns to Sweet Canyon pregnant and utterly alone, Noni Lee is forced to face memories of her own innocence and beauty as well as the haunting traumas that stripped them away. Weaving a traditional rug, Noni Lee reconstructs a history and sense of family for herself and Shi’yazhi—the legacy of Spider Woman, whose gifts of creation and resiliency are a rite passed mother to child, woman to woman, as it was in the beginning, the surest path to hozho, the Beauty within each woman and the transcendence of circumstances most dire.

“In Spider Woman’s Loom, Lorie Adair weaves a tale both lyrical and deeply relatable, a story of family, spirituality, and womanhood. Such beautiful language and images to savor, and yet the story is so compelling you can’t wait to turn the page.” —Tara Ison, author of Rockaway, A Novel
